"Montserrat - Avenida de Mayo" Monserrat District Tip by ptitetoile

Monserrat District, Buenos Aires: 2 reviews and 3 photos

 
 

This Avenue runs from the Plaza de Mayo to the Plaza del Congreso. It is a wide tree- lined avenue which marked Buenos Aires` transformation from a big village to a modern city. It has a lot of wonderful facades that tell the glory of the past : the style of the building is neoclassic, eclectic and art nouveau... During the XXth century, a lot of famous persons walked on its sidewalks : Federico García Lorca, Carlos Gardel, Nijinsky, Le Corbusier, Jorge Luis Borges, José Ortega y Gasset, George Clemenceau, Albert Einstein, Arthur Rubenstein, Josephine Baker and many more...
